Dana Galvin is the vice president of finance and systems at Customers Commercial Finance (CCF), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Customers Bank. Galvin is responsible for managing and overseeing the finance, accounting and pricing departments for CCF as well as managing CCF’s operating/lease accounting system. Galvin’s primary focus over the past several years has been on leveraging and integrating technology to enhance the customer experience and the overall operating efficiencies of CCF’s business units.

“Technology has transformed our industry and as we leverage automation to improve processes and the customer experience, are we becoming too reliant on technology? The increasing requirement for technology is a critical factor for success, but I also believe technology is creating a gap in the knowledge and deep expertise that the leaders of our industry have,” Galvin says. “I’ve had the privilege of being mentored by individuals that have been in equipment financing and leasing for 30 years and if I could change one thing in our industry, I’d encourage people to seek a mentor to gain the valuable skills and knowledge to develop as the next generation of leaders.
